Website Problems

If you have visited the website in the past few days, you may have noticed problems in signing in. The webmaster is aware of the problem and is working to correct it. This may also prevent you from registering your vote for the COMARA Board of Directors. The problem is caused by an update to server software by our web hosting company. Some changes have to be made to the COMARA website pages because of the update.

Election for COMARA Board of Directors

The COMARA Bylaws specify that the members elect three directors by the time of the Annual Meeting. The Directors serve for a period of three (3) years. There are a total of nine (9) Directors assuring a continuation of service.

The existing Board nominates three candidates. While the Bylaws include a provision for additional candidates to be proposed by active members, no additional candidates were proposed within the allowed period.

The Directors nominated for 2017 are
Denis Curtin,
Dan DiFonzo,
Bob Kinzie.

Each of these Directors have agreed to serving an additional three year term beginning in 2017.

Vote is by electronic ballot. The ballot is not currently working due to the website problems above. We hope to have this fixed within a few days.
